Hi,

I have been reading every posts here re Partner Visa (820) and am thankful for all the information provided so far by everyone.

I now have a question that has been nagging me for a while.

I am currently in Australia on a Tourist Visa which expires on the 12th March 2018. I am intending to apply for my Partner Visa (onshore) around the 6th or 7th of March. I have been in a defacto relationship with my Australian partner since 2014 and have all the evidences and documentations.

What worries me is that I work overseas on a Fly In Fly Out roster of 19days on and 9 days off. My current roster has my flight booked to return to work on the 13th March 2018. By then I will have applied for my Partner Visa and my current substantial visa (Tourist Visa) would have expired and my BVA would have kicked in.

My worry is;

1. Will my BVA kick in on the same day my Tourist Visa expires i.e. on the 12th March 2018?

2. Will be able to get a BVB on the same day (12 March 2018) as my BVA kicks in? Need the BVB to travel to work the next day on the 13th March 2018.

3. Finally, I have been in a long term relationship with my partner and I am hoping for Permanent Partner Visa (801) IMMEDIATELY after my 820 visa is approved?

4. Read several posts here changes have been done this year for Partner Visa sponsors to go through strict pre-approval process? That true?

I have travel itineraries confirming travel dates above.

Someone please clarify.

Thanks,
David

1 - The BVA will be granted once you have applied for the 820, it will come into effect immediatly after the expirey of the current visa.

2 - Immigration want BVB applications no greater then 3 months prior and no sooner then 2 weeks prior to allow for processing. Expecting to get a BVB in 1 day is not a good plan, apply earlier.

3 - Ok? I don't understand the question...if it's is this feasible?, then yes.

4 - I am unaware of any changes to partner visas in 2018 so far, so can't comment.

You might well be applying for the wrong visa, but from what has been posted, it is not possible to offer a considered opinion.

It may not be wise to presume that you will be granted continuous BVB’s, so you can keep working overseas for the next 2 years, while your onshore partner visa is being processed.

Abraham,

Thanks mate. Although I would like to lodge my 820 visa earlier, I will be offshore till the 6th March when I come to Australia for my rostered break thus will have to lodge the visa around that time.

And thanks for the tips on BVB.
